Great for strong signal areas
- Benson NC, Benson NC - 11/8/2012
  A must if you have an amplified antenna. If you live in an area where strong signals come in you can back the strength to get the channels you want These will be worth their weight in gold & hard to find so you better scarf them up while you can.





Works Great Shipped Fast.

  I ordered the variable attenuator because the new tv I just got blocked out alot from my oversized amplifier.This little gadget solved my problems instantly. Could not be happier!





It does what it says, sort of.
- Mt Airy, MD - 8/21/2013
  I ordered one that fell apart, the bottom fell off, when I opened the bag it came in. When I measured the attenuation it was almost 15 dB just inserting it in-line, 14.8 dB. It maxed out at above 28 dB. This is not at all what I expected. It is claimed to be a 20 dB attenuator yet it only had 5 dB to go to get there, I expected perhaps a 3dB insertion attenuation, center at around 9 - 12 dB and then max attenuation of 20 - 24 dB.

I requested a replacement and it too fell apart once I opened the bag. Antennas Direct needs to use something other than a thin bead of RTV to hold the bottom plate in place. This unit was a little better than the first. Insertion loss was 11.8 dB, center was 20.4 dB and maximum attenuation was 26.2 dB. Still not as claimed, it was only half-way adjusted and it was already at its claimed maximum attenuation.

Antennas Direct needs to either change their claims of what this attenuator does, or they need to do some quality control on this device.

It is clearly not as specified even in the broad terms of the specification, "this Antennas Direct 20dB variable attenuator" one naturally assumes it will top out at around 20 dB not start there.
